Absolutely excellent tour, easy riding, loads of information and beautiful scenery. Couldn't recommend this highly enough. Best way to see Columbus and easily enjoyable for people who are not so confident on a bike....great for good cyclists too!

The best thing... More

Had the pleasure of taking the Historic Columbus Bike tour. It was an awesome way to see the city, especially for more active people. Our guide, Dr. Gardiner, is a history teacher at Columbus State University and was very knowledgable about the vibrant history. He was nice enough to schedule an early morning tour so it was not too hot... More
